March 18, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

A 23-mile section of the Gunnison River that National Geographic magazine once described as the best trout fishery in the world — and immortalized by Ernie Schwiebert’s “Farewell My Lovely” — is the subject of a DVD presentation at tonight’s meeting of the Grand Valley Anglers Chapter of Trout Unlimited and Federation of Fly Fishers. The fishery was lost with the construction of the Crystal Dam in the 1970s. Dave Buchanan in the Grand Junction Sentinel.
